Netflix Q3 Earnings Preview: Will Pandemic Continue to Spur Streaming Giant’s Growth? – The Wrap
Netflix has seen skyrocketing success in 2020, and the streaming heavyweight is looking to keep it going next week, when it kicks off tech earnings season with its Q3 report.
So far this year, Netflix has seen its stock price soar 68%, easily eclipsing both its own and Wall Street’s subscriber projections during the first half of the year. To put it into perspective: Netflix added about 26 million global customers during Q1 and Q2, only two million less than it did in all of 2019. Heading into its Q3 report next Tuesday, Netflix sits at 192.9 million subscribers overall.
While the coronavirus pandemic has decimated the cinema business and has giants like AMC and Regal fighting for survival, the pandemic has helped spur Netflix’s massive growth. How long that trend continues is open for debate among analysts, however.
Pivotal Research analyst Jeffrey Wlodarczak, in a recent note to clients, said he’s bullish on Netflix’s continued growth. Wlodarczak put a $6 ...

‘Solid irony here’: The cofounder of speaker firm Sonos called out Spotify billionaire Daniel Ek for criticizing Apple’s closed system – Silicon Alley
The cofounder of smart speaker firm Sonos called out Spotify CEO Daniel Ek for his remarks on Apple's closed ecosystem.
In a Wednesday interview with Bloomberg News, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek had said Apple has a long way to go before it's an "open and fair platform." Spotify is currently pursuing an antitrust complaint against Apple.
Shortly after Ek's remarks, Sonos cofounder John MacFarlane said it was "significantly more difficult to work within Spotify's 'closed' ecosystem than Apple's."
Sonos, which makes high-end speakers, is reliant on third-party partnerships with services like Spotify, and it's clear those haven't always gone smoothly.

Ted Sarandos: Coronavirus Has Been ‘Massive Disruption’ for Netflix – The Wrap
Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos says that all of the streaming service’s “productions around the world are shut down” because of the coronavirus pandemic, which he calls “a massive disruption.”
“It’s unprecedented in history,” Sarandos told CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday.
Even as usage of their service has increased from millions of people worldwide staying home on lockdown, Netflix is still navigating the coronavirus crisis.
He noted that because Netflix plans “pretty far ahead” on developing new shows, the service’s release schedule is set for the next several months. He said that the challenge will come later in the year, as shows and films that were in production for release in late 2020 have been put on pause due to the ongoing pandemic...

NBCUniversal Has Sold Its $500 Million Stake In Snap, But Will Continue On As Content Partner – Tubefilter
NBCUniversal -- which comprises TV property NBC as well as film studio Universal Pictures -- is getting out of the Snapchat business.
As first spotted by The Hollywood Reporter, in a 10-K filing by parent company Comcast from Jan. 31, the media conglomerate sold its entire $500 million stake in Snapchat parent company Snap. NBCU first announced that it was investing half a billion dollars into Snap three years ago, as the company was going public, amid other investments by NBCU into digital properties BuzzFeed and Vox.
The Reporter reports that the sale likely serves to offset the reported $2 billion that Comcast is deploying to launch its own streaming service, Peacock, as well as the $39 billion it spent to acquire British media and telecom conglomerate Sky. Per the filming, Comcast recorded a $293 million gain on the sale of its Snap equity in fiscal 2019, but lost $263 million on the investment in 2018, when Snap’s stock price fell in the wake of its IPO....

$1 million per hour: Major music labels hit streaming milestone – TheNextWeb – Relevant Blogs
Streaming persists as a major money maker for music’s fat-cats. Not only did it account for 80% of the entire music industry‘s profit in 2019, streaming collectively earned Universal, Sony, and Warner almost $1 million per hour — per fucking hour. In fact, booming subscriber bases led to increased streaming revenues for the industry’s “Big Three.” Music Business Worldwide reports they hit $3.73 billion, $2.4 billion, and $2.21 billion respectively, down from 2018, but still impressive. This solidifies services like Spotify as the primary revenue driver for Big Music; a market now larger than the entire US recorded music market just two years…

Netflix is testing new price plans with big discounts if you buy a year at a time – BGR
Disney+ has been available for only a month and the streaming service is already is a huge success for Disney. Not only do you get access to plenty of new and old Disney shows, but the Disney+ subscription is actually cheaper than any of Disney's rivals. For $6.99, you get support for four simultaneous Disney+ streams that go up to 4K UHD quality, depending on the show. Netflix’s cheapest plan ($8.99) only supports streaming SD shows to a single device at a time. If you pay for a full year of Disney+ access, the monthly cost goes down to $5.83. It’s no wonder that more than 10 million people subscribed to Disney+ at launch, with many of them having taken advantage of even cheaper pre-release deals. And that number may hit 20 million by the end of the year, according to recent estimates.
All that is apparently enough to scare Netflix into finding better ways to compete against its biggest rival to date. And that includes testing new membership plans that would reduce the...
